Whisky Reviews for Mannochmore 2001 SMWS 64.65

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.33 points

  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Water changes its character but only slightly improves the effect
    • Nose
      musty, a little citrus like lemon handwipes, touch of pineapple; with some drops the mustiness goes and it is more a lively fruitiness
    • Taste
      fizzy, somewhat fruity but dominated by the alcohol; with a few drops the fizziness goes making for a slightly less fruity more savoury taste
    • Finish
      citrus fades into some bitter woodiness or perhaps my mouth is drying up; with water the effect is just diminished but the finish is just about a medium but quite savoury in note; maybe more bread crusts than meaty

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Aladdin's lamp

    Flavour Profile: Sweet, fruity & mellow

    The nose had unstinted salivating sweetness (toffee, marshmallows, nougat, maple syrup on ice-cream, Crunchie bars, sugary espresso dregs) plus a mesmerizing melange of exotic fruits, some pine and old-fashioned perfumes. The palate was really juicy and lively – slightly bitter but attractive fruits dancing jigs on our willing tongues (kumquat, preserved lemon, Caribbean punch, sherbet lemons) – we also got balsamic glaze, cinnamon stick, vanilla and juicy oak. The reduced nose seemed fruitier, fresher and mouth-watering, with pineapple, apricot, melon, tutti-frutti and lemon tart. The reduced palate was as bitter-sweet as Tennyson’s lost love – lemon drizzle cake, bitter lemon and pickled ginger.

    Drinking Tip: It's quite lively - something to put you in the mood for dancing, fun fairs or sky-diving
